The Chevy Silvarado 1500 is Chevy’s answer to the Ford F-150, Ford’s heavy duty truck line. While this still feels heavy and large, it cuts weight due to mixed materials instead of aluminum in the F-150. Not too much else is being revealed though. Chevy is planning on doing the big release at the Detroit Auto show, but they are expected to still have a V8 for power and torque.
- Wearing buff new bodywork and sitting on a completely redesigned frame, the latest Silverado promises to be lighter and more capable than its predecessor
- the new truck uses higher-strength steel in its bed as a means of shedding mass
- The new truck offers a Trailboss variant, and has a new sleeker look to it than its boxy forebear’s.
“With its knobby tires and angry-looking maw, the aggressive 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss gives us our first glimpse of the bodywork that will define the brand’s bread-and-butter truck, which now incorporates flowing lines over its wheel arches and body sides, sports a set of thin and aggressive headlights, and wears attractive scalloped taillamps.”
